Do any of you spend time on HNBA or other affinity organizations? If so, do you bill your time as non-billable, i.e. diversity? And how do you balance your time going to an events/getting involved?

Was at an event recently. Seems like advertising really only cares about diversity as it applies to white women. I think this industry wants to stay white.
“There is no gender pay gap”
It seems like every firm advertises that they support diversity and inclusion. What does your firm actually do in terms of mentorship or other programs for diverse attorneys and do you find it actually beneficial? My firm reached out about a mentorship program where they were supposed to pair us with a partner mentor who is also person of color, but I still haven't heard back.

If consumers prefer diversity in ads, wouldn't it make sense to have a more diverse industry? Why does agencies lack diversity?
I just watched the KPMG boss video and honestly I feel it can be interpreted in different ways. You can tell when a person says something to intentionally hurt you and when they can’t just fathom the implications based on how people interpret it. As we learn to work in an increasingly diversity focused environment I pray there’s room for forgiveness. Mind you I am a person of color. I believe in second chances and I don’t think he should have lost his job. https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-9253165/KPMG-boss-QUITS-video-showed-telling-paid-staff-lucky.html
Looking for a black male therapist in CA is proving to be a challenge. Anyone here residing in CA with personal experience willing to provide recommendations? I am open to therapists of other gender as well. Thanks in advance.
Are you concerned that when we only push “have it all” messaging to women we’re just adding to women’s career stress while reinforcing existing gender norms around home and childcare responsibilities?
